About this Item

An usual double faux book. N.d., circa 1900. With a typical Japanese style lacquer design of flowers and geometric shapes rendered in a deep brown crimson. The sides are black with straight lines meant to suggest books, along with a few other features that help create the illusion. The box measures 17 by 12 cm, and is 5 cm high. The top lid opens up on each side, with two separate wells to house cards perhaps, or whatnots. The hinges for the lid are metal pieces in the center, and between these metal pieces is a small handle. A few chips on the edges, with trivial loss of lacquer. Other light wear.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
